Oak Ridge High School Trojans Win State Title

Props to the Oak Ridge High School women’s basketball team for winning their league title, the section title, the NorCal Championship, and now the CIF Division I state basketball championship. The Trojans took down the mighty Jackrabbits of Long Beach Poly 55 – 42 on Saturday night.

The Poly Jackrabbits (32-3) sought to become the first girls or boys team in state history to win five consecutive state titles. The Trojans, however, pieced together their own history by playing a fundamental brand of sharing the ball, defending with purpose and making free throws in the final minutes…Mark Tennis, longtime editor of Cal-Hi Sports/ESPN Rise, called the Trojans’ effort “the biggest upset in state girls championship history; not even close.”


Special props go out to the News10.net commenters who called out Ryan Yamamoto’s grammar and typographical errors.

The shoes are called “Uggs”, not “Ughs”. That would be more along the lines of “Ugh! You guys are supposed to be journalists and yet again, you were hellbent on getting the story out quickly as opposed to making sure it was correct.”

Nice one.
